My hat’s off to Milo. He still gets invited to college campuses. I certainly don’t, and neither do most of my colleagues engaged in counter terrorism work. And look what happens when any of us are invited — the new left, totalitarian savages.
President Trump must take action. We must get our colleges back from these radical haters. Any university that accepts federal funds must provide a balanced education. For every leftist professor, there must be a conservative professor. American universities are out of control. They are hotbeds of hate, intolerance and incitement to violence. The kick off was the Student Revolution in 1964. This is the end result — Nazi youth.
UC Berkeley cancels Milo Yiannopoulos event amid violent protest
By Michael Bodley and Nanette Asimov, San Francisco Chronicle, February 1, 2017
A protest at UC Berkeley turned fiery and violent Wednesday night, shutting down a scheduled speech by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.
The Breitbart News editor was set to deliver a speech inside a UC Berkeley campus building but hundreds of protesters began throwing fireworks and pulling down the metal barricades police set up to keep people from rushing into the building. Windows were smashed and fires were set outside the building as masked protesters stormed it, and at 6 p.m., one hour before his scheduled speech was to begin, police decided to evacuate Yiannopoulos for his own safety.
The Berkeley Police Department said people threw bricks, smoking objects, and fireworks at police officers. University police locked down all buildings and ordered a shelter in place, and later fired rubber pellets into the crowd of protesters who defied orders to leave the area. Police called in support from other law enforcement agencies and warned protesters that they might use tear gas.
Protesters argued that hate speech isn’t free speech, countering the university’s explanation — free speech — on why it had allowed the event to proceed even as students demanded that the university cancel it.
